Home Automation is Sexy, But Security Protection Sells

Smart home gadgets are all the rage. From smartphone-controlled lights and garage doors to crock-pots you can control from miles away, there are tons of connected “things” that make up today’s connected home. But, does the most important aspect of the smart home, the smart home’s true foundation, get overlooked?

With the right security platform, it can become the foundation in which other smart home pieces– the cool or interesting things– can be built upon. 

Lowe’s recently conducted a smart home survey, polling adults 18 and older.

Internet of Things Changes Product Interaction

He goes on to explain how the landscape has changed.
